BJP Chief Requests EAM to Establish a Helpline for Indian Students and NRIs in Canada

<p>In the midst of a diplomatic dispute between Canada and India, Punjab BJP president Sunil Jakhar on Saturday requested the minister of External Affairs, S. Jaishankar, to establish a hotline for Indian students and NRIs there.</p>
<p>While outlining the worries of Canadian residents, Jakhar wrote to the Union Minister urging him to publish a thorough statement outlining the steps the Center is doing to ensure the safety of the nation’s nationals in Canada until the final settlement of this matter. “I am certain that this would go a long way toward relieving the intense fear, stress, and uncertainty now felt by our people living in Canada, particularly those students who are waiting to study abroad. Our students, who have legitimate concerns regarding their study schedules, would benefit greatly from an assurance from your administration, Jakhar stated in the letter.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-201010″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-shreyas-iyer-escapes-a-tough-catch-but-loses-two-balls-later-as-too-much-drama-dev-750×500.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com shreyas iyer escapes a tough catch but loses two balls later as too much drama dev” width=”1430″ height=”953″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-shreyas-iyer-escapes-a-tough-catch-but-loses-two-balls-later-as-too-much-drama-dev-750×500.jpg 750w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-shreyas-iyer-escapes-a-tough-catch-but-loses-two-balls-later-as-too-much-drama-dev-768×512.jpg 768w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-shreyas-iyer-escapes-a-tough-catch-but-loses-two-balls-later-as-too-much-drama-dev-150×100.jpg 150w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-shreyas-iyer-escapes-a-tough-catch-but-loses-two-balls-later-as-too-much-drama-dev.jpg 900w” sizes=”(max-width: 1430px) 100vw, 1430px” title=”BJP Chief Requests EAM to Establish a Helpline for Indian Students and NRIs in Canada 3″></p>
<p>He proposed making a WhatsApp contact number available for Indian students who want to study abroad so they may contact the appropriate people if they need any information or direction. “I would also ask that you set up a special hotline number that our NRIs and students may use to get in touch with Indian Consulates and request assistance. For Indian students wanting to study overseas, a WhatsApp number may be made public so they can contact the appropriate people for help and assistance, Jakhar stated in his letter.</p>
<p>The diplomatic ties between the two nations have inevitably deteriorated in the aftermath of the Canadian Prime Minister’s unfounded accusations against the Indian Government. To satisfy his domestic political needs, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has manufactured these ludicrous and vicious accusations, according to the head of the Punjab BJP.</p>
<p>He said, “The Indian government has taken the proper stance by vehemently refuting PM Trudeau’s outburst and by demanding proof, which does not seem forthcoming.</p>
<p>The letter stated, “While I hope that Prime Minister Trudeau realizes his folly as soon as possible and the matter is resolved amicably, it is our citizens, a large portion of whom are Punjabis, who are likely to be impacted by the current impasse, including the suspension of visas by the Indian Government to keep a security check on entry into India.</p>
<p>At the start of winter, he said, most NRIs living in Canada visit their family there. He said that they are “truly anxious about the unfolding situation.” In response to “security threats” to its high commission and consulates in Canada, India on Thursday announced temporarily suspending the issuance of visas to Canadian citizens. This announcement came amid a growing diplomatic dispute over Ottawa’s allegations regarding the killing of a Khalistani separatist on Canadian soil.</p>
<p>The controversy started when Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of Canada, said that Indian operatives may have had “potential” involvement in the June shooting of Khalistani rebel Hardeep Singh Nijjar. The accusation has been deemed “absurd” by India.</p>
